    Default Big 5 is more accurate than MBTI, and is favored by researchers

    Thus, I believe the focus on this site ought to shift more towards Big 5, though MBTI is still interesting.


    My Big 5 has stayed pretty stable, with conscientiousness always being really low, openness and agreeableness staying very high, and my extroversion and neuroticism staying about around the mean of the general population. This was from several sources over some time. On the other hand, while N and P stay consistent on my MBTI, E/I and F/T flip a lot. That is just my affirmation.

    E/I and F/T don't flip a lot. MBTI is just harder to measure because it measures cognition not behavior.

    I while back I had a similar thread. I find that Big 5 has some nice solutions when compared to MBTI. (which has its own beauties)


    1. Neuroticism scale it very good add on in the system. Especially since this matters quite a bit in real life.
    2. Openness scale may be much smarter divide than S/N.
    3. There is no function order, that beyond first 2 functions has not real correlation with reality.
    4. It think that Big 5 does not have a guide of "Who should date who".

    It's accepted because it's measurable on a scale and isn't dichotomised. It only measures, it doesn't provide much more insight than what can be intuitively gleaned from it.

    Took the big 5 a few years ago. The results were correlated with test takers mbti scores. Based on which it told me i was entp.

    I actually never scored anything but entp so as far as im concernedthe mbti is the most stable test o ve ever taken.

    Changing your answers would mean changingself perception. I d assume anyone above 22 would know who they are by that point
    Your behavior might change but your preference. Thats your personality.

    I've made part of my living by toying around with the Big 5 and connecting it to other phenomena,conducting research, developing other topological systems for application in the real world, etc. That stuff is awesome, and seeing it in action is like seeing your grandchild learn to take steps for the first time.

    I've floated the idea of a Big 5 subforum before. It didn't go over so well, and for good reason.

    In and of itself, it's not so interesting.

    "Yeah, man; there sure are five factors. Yep. There sure are."

    The development of systems through e.g. factor analysis, using it in research, seeing what it can tell us.. that's interesting. It turns out to have good test-retest reliability. And so on.

    I figured that anything we'd discuss about the Big 5 would be suitable for the Psychology subforum.

    Yeah I haven't really gotten much out of Big 5. It's straightforward, promotes little discussion. And yeah it is boring.

    What's wrong with boring if it's accurate? Sometimes it's not a good idea to make everything needlessly complicated. My big five has also always been very stable and obvious, whereas my MBTI has not.
